the candidates from 2012 trying their hands again? rick santorum, rick perry, both said to be thinking about it according to politico. weigh in on that. >> i think rick santorum will almost certainly run. he had a pretty good showing last time. he did well in the early states. he acquitted himself well in the debates. he's particularly popular with social conservatives but also working class republicans. i think santorum is definitely a likely candidate. rick perry obviously flamed out, didn't do so well. not so sure there's a second try for rick perry. >> richard, i want to talk about chris christie with you. there was that quinnipiac poll, 89% in it said his response was excellent or good. the internal poll, they're even better than 89%. is he the future of the gop? >> he has to get through his re-election first. we've seen this before to a certain extent. props to governor christie for doing what he did and, frankly, for rising above poll 0 particulars and saying that the president did a good job. but we saw this once before. remember when charlie crist, the former governor of florida, ph
consciences that's why mike huckabee and rick santorum do well in iowa. i don't think obama or romney are well suited to iowa. did i just say ohio? i meant iowa. >> iowa. >> anyway, i don't think eat of those candidates are particularly well suited because there's a strong populace strain in iowa politics. i ultimately do have it going blue if you look at the polls. romney has never led in iowa, interestingly even though as you pointsed out the democrats held a slight advantage in voting in registration numbers in 2008. they are turning out the same number in terms of early votes. they have a 60,000 vote advantage this year at this time versus in 2008 which is the same. so i think ultimately it is going to go to president obama. >> i have it going red but, again, i think we put up that chart of presidential voting history since 1972 it's picked republican president five times, a democrat president five times. guess this is like the rubber match. just quickly want to note that yesterday i laid down some smack is what i did. >> a group smack down. >> i spoke for the group. yes. when i made some
had not had a super pac which would have been running against rick santorum. if your hillary clinton or andrew cuomo, not saying these people are running, but jeb bush, marco rubio, pick your candidate -- it is not about could we win iowa, could we build a grass-roots campaign? what is your platform? not saying this candidates will not have to do that, but if you do not have a super pac game that is huge you are not going to be able to win your party nomination. that is it really disturbing trend. >> in any given competitive congressional campaign in the country the candidate committee, the actual campaign of the guy running for office or the woman running for office, has the smallest voice in the race with regard to the outside groups. it is increasingly true in senate races. it is increasingly true even in the presidential race. a brief follow up to that -- to talk about the senate and congressional and presidential races. is this kind of technique that was owned and endorsed by the supreme court and so on in this election, presidential election, going to have any effect on issue c
because he was the chief backer of the rick santorum super pac. i interviewed him in february and asked about taxes, do you think rich people should pay more taxes? he said people don't realize how well the people self tax. there's a fellow who is ceo of target. recreated a museum of music. he put in $200 million of his own money. i have another friend to give $400 million to a facility in south dakota or someplace like that. look at bill gates to gave $750 million to fight aids. we should get rid of taxes as much as we can because you get to decide how you spend your money rather than the government. if you have a certain cause, an art museum and want to support it it would be nice to have the choice to support it. where we are headed you will be taxed, your money taken away and the government will support it. it is a question. do you believe the government should be taking your money and spending it for you or do you want to spend it for you. you went on to say actually, it is absurd to tax the reproductive billionaire guys because of everything they do for us. if you look at what ste
that michele bachmann or rick perry, or rick santorum didn't was running a personal candidacy. he didn't come in at the head of some movement, with ideological points to prove. what he believed i think and certainly what his campaign staff believed, was the country was heading down a terrible trajectory, it required a man of profound competition to fix, and he was going to present himself as somebody who was more competent than president obama in his closing argument, he said repeatedly to voters in wisconsin and new hampshire and virginia, you don't have to settle. what's holding us back from being a great nation is a lack of leadership. there is something both moving and ultimately very thin about the alternative that mitt romney presented because it was based so much on the promise of himself. >> yeah. the humanity, be we were talking about that -- what was supposed to be a victory celebration gone horly, horribly wrong, the sense they were on the precipes the golden ring was within their grasp and snatched at the very last minute was not something they were prepared for. >> not at all. as
of rick santorum. i don't know why he think its is an urgent national security issue and why the republican party is doubling down on issues like this. it is a serious moral position. i think the fact on this issue the country is closely divided, and there is no evidence to suggest that it would disqualify the elected president of the united states but surely we must understand the position. particularly suburban and young women do not want to hear lectures on contraception from old white republicans. we are the women in government party. we see it too often from the leadership in washington a version of big conservatism where the government is peering through the windows into matters of sexual orientation, lifestyle choices and contraception. when you have people talking about the individual mandate and screaming about tyrany and we are on 1,000 years of darkness. at the same time we are voting in people in state legislatures that are mandating -- it does not add up or make sense and it is being rejected and it will continue to be rejected across the country. if you look at
's unlikely. there's two big problems. one is what rick santorum said during the primary campaign was right. that actually room any is the worst republican candidate to run against barack obama. secondly, there's the issue of president obama has run an incredibly effective campaign with the exception of the first debate, his campaign is effective in targeting mitt romney from the beginning and they painted him into a corner and held his positions against him. now the mathematically it's difficult for romney to win right now. this is not just a question about nate silver and everybody else. obama is leading in seven of the nine swing states. romney has to win at least five of those swing states in order to win the election. he's nowhere near that right now. so in order for romney to win, almost all of the swing state polls have to be almost completely wrong, and that's unlikely. >> let me read what "the new york times" put in their article today. as the night unfolds, clues to the outcome will spill out. if exit polling indicates that mr. romney is exceeding the share of white vote that went
have no idea how any other american useles birth control with the acception of rick santorum. and i don't know why he wants to talk about it or why he thinks it's a national security issue and why the republican party is doubling down on issues like this. the prolife position is a serious moral position and i think the fact that on this issue the country is closely divided and there is no toveed suggest that being prolife is a disqualifier to being elected president of the united states. but surely we must understand the difference that being prolife doesn't default you into anti-contraception and women in this country particularly young women don't want to here contraception leckchures from white over 50,. we are the limited government party. and we see too often from the leadership in washington a version of big government conservatism where the government is peering through the window into matters of sexual orientation, into life style choices and issues like continue tra acception. so there is an intellectle disdense when people are talking about tyranny and we stand on the precipic
santorum and we can do that. and that's a natural inclination of evangelicals but in the end we want someone who shares our values in terms of the policies that will recognize religious freedom, that will recognize the importance of the family and to the point of the caller made about the difference between the inner city families and he made some allusion to the white caucasian family has access to more government support. actually what strengthens the opportunitieso that children have is that family unit, that mom and dad that they grow up with. unfortunately, what we've seen in the inner city that we now are at a point where 70% of our children in the inner city are being raise bid single parents and so they're missing that influence that most -- in most cases of a father. and that's important. it's important both in the life of a girl and of a boy. for a young man they learn how to control their masculinity, they learn their socialization skills from their father. and then that daughter from the father learns that sense of self-worth and is one of the main factors in causing youn
designed to preserve those natural rights. >> brian: rick santorum knew you and endorsed the book. it's out there right now. thank you for joining us. >> gnaw for having me on. >> gretchen: it's called "the american ideology." next on the rundown the president's offer to avoid going over the fiscal cliff tax and spend. what about any kind of cuts? we're live in washington coming up next. >> brian: so disappointing. then the circus is overment big update in the story of zebra and his pony pal who ran through the streets of new york city. >> gretchen: do you know what happened? >> brian: i do know what happened. and it's got me well n a tizzy. >> gretchen: really? >> brian: yes [ male announcer ] this december, remember -- you can stay in and share something... or you can get out there and actually share something. ♪ ♪ the lexus december to remember sales event is on. this is the pursuit of perfection. it's my favorite time of year again and now -- i got a great new way to get deals. it's called bankameride
decided by eight votes between rick santorum and mitt romney and then oh, by the way the results flipped two weeks later, i've always worried that that was foreshadowing this nightmare scenario. >> as you talk to us, chuck, i want to note that vice president biden is waiting in line to vote in delaware this morning. we'll keep an eye on that as you and i continue to talk. >> reporter: speaking of vice president biden. under this scenario and people are wondering if you don't get to 270, this would go to the house, so the house would elect the president. the senate would elect the vice president, so under this scenario your most likely outcome romney/biden. >> then we'll know we're in an alternate reality. chuck, let's move on to florida. if it came down to florida being the deciding state, how might that play how the? >> well, here's the issue with florida right now, and this has to do with election challenges, and i'll just put it here to center it up a little bit. there were two big issues in the state of florida this year that came up. one is in palm beach county where 60,000 absentee
anybody who mitt romney was. as soon as it won the nomination, i think it was one rick santorum dropped out, they decided to focus on discipline. they thought any topic that was not on obama are the economy was not worth a dollar spent. is spent entirely until just before the convention on banging on the economy and the obama. to a certain extent, we have an incumbent president running for re-election, it is a referendum on the incumbent. it is a referendum on the economy. but the thing about it is, you have got to define your own candidate in a way and a positive way biographical advertising and testimonial advertising. you need to make them a real, three-dimensional, trustworthy individual. think of the boy scouts. that is a general idea. that is a general thing you want to get across. you need to apply that to your candidate in order to protect them from the slime that is coming. in the romney campaign, they adamantly chose not to do that. the obama campaign, give credit where credit is due, they saw their opponent was undefined. i sat with some focus groups. other than a romney was
of the republican party is martinez and not new gingrich and rick santorum. i have a sneaking suspicion i think you might as well that four or eight years from now we are going to be talking about the great inroads that a republican presidential candidate has made with latinos in the electorate because i don't see anyplace for republicans to go but up. they have to adapt in order to be competitive this year. just looking at someone like chris christi down the road, republicans are going to kind of face a fork in the road in the future presidential nomination contest between someone who is able to bridge that gap between partisan appeal on the tea party right and independent voters or someone who is going to be stuck in that base and as the republican coalition continue to contract i think it is only going to be more difficult for someone to overcome that divided to win a nomination and be able to put it to a general election. there are people in the republican party who plausibly can win both the primary general election. >> will turn to the microphone where we will have a microphone so you can ide
